Digital Ocean Nameservers use Default or My Droplet IP Address
I am brand new to the Droplet, and Digital Ocean community, and I first want to say thanks to those that are here and provide tutorials for everyone else.
With that said, I have successfully installed Centos 7 Droplet and have already installed WHM and cPanel on the system, however, now I am questioning if I set that up correctly, when it asked in cPanel for 3 nameservers and their IP addresses, should I have used the default (3) IP addresses it gives for Digital Ocean nameservers (which are all 3 different) OR was I supposed to use my actual Droplet/Server IP address?
I am now trying to change a site domain to point to the new nameservers which is http://mealii.com but when I look up DNS it reports nothing back, and also the history shows the below message & history codes:
Sorry, we couldn’t find any name servers for ‘mealii.com’

Should I just wait and is everything just need some extra time to propagate? Maybe I’m too impatient. =)
